I thought of this project after seeing old photographs of San Pablo City, and being fascinated by them. I always wish to see more. I want to see video. I want to see how people lived, moved... how they sounded, what colors there were and so on. Although this is no longer possible, I thought I'd make it possible for future San Pablo City residents to see what life is like here in San Pablo in 2006-2007.
Perhaps these videos will hold much interest for people born in San Pablo, 20 years and further on from now. I would imagine someone 100 years from now looking at these moving pictures and be fascinated at what life is like for us now.
Yes, I trust that Archive.org will be here that long.
Scenes from this particular video were taken on the afternoon of December 22, 2006 along the banks of Sampalok Lake, and on the overpass at Rizal Avenue, next to Central School.

This is great. I have been away from our home in Laguna (Barangay Palita, Alaminos) many years. It is great that these images are being captured. I don't have to wait 100 years, I will show these to our grandchildren as soon as possible!
